Accommodatie

Dit is een accommodatietour waarbij je 12 nachten in en suite chalets en casitas verblijft met eigen sanitair. 1 nacht in Bilene heeft combinatie van en suite kamers en twee kamers met gedeelde badkamer in een casita. De gidsen zijn verantwoordelijk voor de verdeling van de kamers. Beperkte deelname: Een essentieel onderdeel van de safari is participatie. Van het opzetten van de kookspullen en het inpakken van de truck in de ochtend – het is allemaal onderdeel van het avontuur. Je reisleiders verzorgen de maaltijden maar de reizigers worden wel gevraagd om mee te helpen met de afwas. Er zijn een aantal lange reisdagen wat inhoudt dat je ’s ochtends vroeg opstaat.

De gemiddelde leeftijd is 46 jaar op deze reis. Kinderen van 12 jaar en ouder zijn meer dan welkom mits ze samen met de ouder(s) reizen. (Jongere kinderen zijn meer dan welkom op de privéreis variant). Wanneer je ouder bent dan 65 jaar is een gezondheidsverklaring noodzakelijk.

Extras/Upgrades

Indien je een eigen eenpersoonskamer wenst te hebben komt er €360,- bij.

Exclusief

  • Lokale Kosten: ZAR2000 p.p. Op deze reis is sprake van Lokale Kosten. De Lokale Kosten zijn verplicht en onderdeel van de totale prijs van de reis. Dit deel (US$) betaal je echter in Afrika tijdens de pre-departure meeting meestal op de eerste dag van de reis. De Lokale Kosten worden door je reisleider tijdens de reis gebruikt om bepaalde contante betalingen te verrichten - denk hierbij aan verse producten, kampeertoeslagen en entreegelden van nationale parken. Pinautomaten en elektronisch bankieren is helaas nog niet erg vanzelfsprekend in Afrika en daarom is dit voor jou de voordeligste en duurzaamste manier en het beste voor de lokale economie van Afrika. Dit systeem wordt al jaren gebruikt bij onze internationale groepsreizen. Mocht je het erg vervelend vinden om met zoveel contant geld te reizen, neem dan contact met ons op en wij zoeken naar de beste oplossing. Geen gedoe, geen Lokale Kosten? We bieden ook een aantal groepsreizen aan waarbij alles inclusief is. Je betaalt gewoon één vaste tourprijs waarbij alle excursies en drie maaltijden per dag inbegrepen zijn. Vraag ons welke reizen dat zijn!

  • Vliegticket (op aanvraag bij te boeken)
  • Shuttle van/naar het vliegveld (op aanvraag bij te boeken)

Research since the early 1990s indicates that there are approximately 400 individual dolphins moving through the Ponta do Ouro area, of which about 150 are resident. We have 3 boat launches planned which gives us a chance to snorkel on the shallow reefs, view dolphins and whales from the boat, and hopefully swim with dolphins if their activity at the time permits us to enter the water.

Special Interest:
The traditional fish traps of Kosi Bay mouth are cleared each day, by the local community. Only larger fish are caught as they cannot leave the estuary with the outgoing tide.
Sustainable Tourism:
We spend 1 night in the Kosi Bay area. This KwaZulu Natal Park is an example of how conservation and the needs
of the local communities can work hand in hand. The local community is permitted to harvest fish within the

development of sustainable tourism.

FAQ

Ik reis alleen. Is er een single supplement?

Wanneer je alleen reist word je ingedeeld met iemand van hetzelfde geslacht. Wens je een eigen kamer of eigen tent? Per reis zijn er een paar eenpersoonskamers onder voorbehoud van beschikbaarheid.

Welke valuta moet ik meenemen?

Voor deze tour is de ZAR het meest gangbaar. Een creditcard en pinpas wordt soms geaccepteerd in lodges, restaurants, activiteiten centra en supermarkten.

Zal ik een extra nacht voorafgaand aan de reis bijboeken?

We raden aan om de dag voor vertrek al aan te komen in Afrika. Deze boeken we op verzoek voor je bij (slaapzaal/dorm of eigen kamer).

Luchthaventransfer bijboeken?

We raden aan om via ons een luchthaven transfer bij aankomst te boeken. Iemand wacht je op met een naambordje. Hierdoor weet je dat je niet wordt opgelicht en naar de juiste accommodatie wordt gebracht.
